If your favorite tire manufacturer hasn't already submitted make sure they know about it....

Cheers,

This is in my opinion a joke. Every year, the same RFP is distributed. They will never move away from Bridgestone because of the relationships that exist. They have to do it as a formality of the org.

In their Defense, Bridgestone was a great partner to work with while I was the IKF Regional coordinator.... as were their Importers/distributors. I really like their tire for regional races. In terms of how long they last/durability, I would have no idea. At the regional/national level you have to be on stickers to be competitive (at least for qualifying).

On the other hand, I am a huge fan of the MG Red tire. They can last for half a season (including practices) for club racing.
